The first C3S Data Rescue Service Capacity Building Workshop will take place jointly with the 10th ACRE workshop at NIWA, Auckland, New Zealand from 4th-8th December 2017.
The C3S capacity building component will bring together participants from the ACRE Antarctica project and additional participants from the surrounding regions the southern Pacific and Indo-Pacific to encourage the development of regional support networks. Opportunities for local participants to discuss their work to date and future plans will promote this network development and enable sharing of experience and skills. The partners will present and educate in the use of the Data Rescue Services available at the time of each workshop. Where relevant we may also promote use of basic climate analysis tools, linking with existing programmes such as the ETCCDI and ET-SCI9. This is also an opportunity for C3S Data Rescue Service members to test developed services and improve regional understanding and contacts.
The 10th ACRE workshop enables this event to be extended to a 5 day workshop. ACRE workshops bring together all those currently working in the area of climate data rescue including climate scientists, National Meteorological Service staff, historians and archivists from around the world. This is a chance to hear about progress to date on various data rescue projects, new projects and historical reanalyses development. Participants are encouraged to stay for all 5 days to benefit from the research discussed during the ACRE meeting and networking opportunities.
C3S funding is used to cover T&S for a selection of key partners, workshop local hosts and regional participants. Additional funding has been given from WMO and NIWA to enable more participants from around the region. Remote partcipation through the GoToMeeting software will also be possible. More details and registration forms can be found on the NIWA local host page.
